Mason jars are pretty and inexpensive and they are the perfect size to use for wedding displays and favours. Mason jars have been around for many years and were originally used for home canning and preserves. Today, many people find other uses for them. Mason jars are quite inexpensive and are an easy way to add ambiance to your celebration. Here are some of the top ideas for using mason jars at your wedding.

Tealight candles – Use mason jars as candle holders. They make very cute tealight candle holders. Tie a simple ribbon in your wedding colour on the top and place them on tables for centrepieces.

Cookie mix favours – A popular favour is to give a cookie mix and recipe. Layer the dry ingredients in the Mason jar and secure the lid. Add a printed recipe card and attach it with a raffia tie. Give one to each guest as a wedding favour.

Granola or caramel corn favours – Mason jars make a cute and inexpensive holder for all types of food favours. Fill with a fun food such as granola or caramel corn to make a pretty display.

Flower vases – Use mason jars to hold flowers for table decorations. They can be grouped together to make an interesting display on each table and throughout the reception venue.

Drink glasses – Mason jars make great drinking glasses. They are especially cute for signature wedding drinks. Add a colourful straw and they instantly create a fun atmosphere to the party.

Wedding cake in a jar – Instead of serving your wedding cake in boxes or bags, why not place cake in Mason jars. Add a printed tag with a pretty ribbon and you’ve instantly jazzed up your wedding cake to double as a favour.

Path lights – Outdoor weddings need lots of lighting. Add some easy path lights by placing candles in Mason jars. Position the jars along the path to light the way for guests.

Candy Jars – A candy bar is a fun, trendy addition to your reception. Choose a display with lots of huge jars of penny candies and scoops. Allow guests to fill up their Mason jar with the candy of their choice to take home.
